REVIEW | MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer

MAU Luxe Velvet Lacquer in "Funk"

In my last huge hual of make up I purchased a lot of items from the new MUA Luxe line, one of those things being the MUA Luxe Velvet Lacquer in "Funk". It's meant to be a clear dupe for the LimeCrime Velvetines. They have four colors in thier collection: a vampy red - "Reckless", a neon pink - "Criminal", an eggplant-ish purple - "Kooky", and a deeper, wearable pink - "Funk". 

I choose "Funk" because I don't own colour like it which it always such a great reason to buy something, innit? The product itself comes in a sleek clear glass tube, with a dope foot applicator which is joined by a black cap with gold writing - fancy stuff, eh? 

The colour itself is this beautiful pink, think "Barbie grew up and didn't choose Ken but went for a more mature man" kinda pink. 
DISCLAIMER: Make sure you prep your lips before using any type of matt products.
When your first apply it to your lips, the colour payoff is amazeballs. Make sure you apply it quickly and erase any mistakes asap, because after a couple of seconds, it won't budge. The longevity of the product depends on you too be honest. If you tend to snack a lot of eat your lip products (just me then?) than it will wear off. After a couple of hours, the product tends to flake off. 
TIP: After applying the product, open your mouth a bit and let it dry. The product dries evenly. 
Overall, I'm happy with the MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer. It's easy to apply, goes matt, and comes off easily as well. 

If you get the chance, do try out these lippes, they're worth the money!
